Eh, I’ve asked before. And both times, the gift had arrived without a card. (well, I suppose that’s what one of the couples told me, but I know the other couple was telling the truth because Bloomingdales screwed it up and they got our gift with a card reading, “Dear Harry & Molly– Congratulations! Love, Abby and Steve.” Right gift, but they were not Harry & Molly and we are not Abby & Steve. I saw the actual card and what’s funny is I’ve been tempted to do that for other friends’ gifts as a joke.)

It is rude if they don’t send a thank you card however I’d give them more time.  While most send thank yous in the first 3 months, it’s still acceptable up to 1 year later.  Give them time.

If I still heard nothing, I’d say to them in passing next time you speak, ‘oh did you get my wedding gift by the way’.  When they acknowledtge that they did, simply say ‘that’s good, I just wanted to check if you got it and that you like it’.  End of story.  Hopefully that will be enough to give the hint they should have thanked you!!
